The Wii is Nintendo's next generation system. It was originally code-named the Revolution. There have been two fads based on the Wii.
The Wiimote (formerly Revmote)
During September 2005 at the Tokyo Game Show, Nintendo revealed that the controller for the new Revolution system would be a remote. After the annoucement, it did not take that long for sites to pop up. Sites criticized the design while others showed the players attempting to "play" various and images. The fad borrows from the Blue Ball machine and uses "Pee Wee's Breakfast Machine" by Danny Elfman as the theme song.
Nintendo Wii Arises
On April 27, 2006, Nintendo annouced on their website that they would be renaming the Revolution as the Wii. The name change was also criticized, and it took even less time for Wii sites to seize control of ytmnd. Original wii sites used sound clips of people saying wii (especially Gonads and Strife and WRRYYYY). Some of the titles to the original remote sites were updated due to the name change.
